LEED Buildings


The University of Utah is committed to building a campus that will serve as an innovative model for current and future generations.


Achieving LEED Certification

The University seeks third-party verification for green ­­­buildings through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings. LEED buildings exemplify advancements in planning, construction, maintenance, and operations that result in less energy, less water usage, and reduction in greenhouse emissions. Additionally, these advancements save money.
